Welcome to 1st Grade - Chinese Immersion
1st grade is a year of many important transitions. Children leave behind an environment that includes time for play and discovery, and dive into developing deeper academic skills. 1st grade is a crucial year for building reading skills. This year we will be using a literature based series published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Literacy instruction includes a balance between phonemic awareness, phonics, reading fluency, comprehension strategies, and vocabulary. Daily reading practice is an essential part to making 1st graders strong readers. We will build problem solving skills with many strategies in Math and Science.
